This school has a very disorganized administration that does not support its teachers. There's a lack of disciolary action, lack of enforcement to keep education first, lack of focus on the students well rounded educational needs. The teachers work hard and have nothing to show for it. They also have some teachers who are unqualified. The students are disrespectful passed the lower school and have no direction.
